St. Paul's Esto Vir andGrace groups are more than fraternity or sorority gatherings, although that is an important component. These gatherings are intentional about providing an environment to live out one's faith in everyday life, growth in virtue, expanding on what it means to be authentically human, and for the advancement of sanctity. While these groups provide a means of fraternity and sorority, these men and women are serious about the spiritual life, and have made the connection that the insatiable thirst in their heart is the longing and ache for the things of God.

Esto Vir, latin for "Be a man," is the motto of men's group. Every Thursday these young men gather together for fellowship, an inspiring talk by one of the members, and prayer. Ultimately, it is for the sake of understanding what it is to be a man of God, and to walk with one another into a deeper discovery of the Lord's call for their lives. Esto vir!
Modeling themselves after the Blessed Virgin Mary, "full of grace," these women come together every Wednesday evening for Bible Study and to support one another.
